“Beautiful view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Breakfast is great. Wait staff very friendly. This is a place that the locals frequent, which is always a good sign. Go early as they tend to be quite busy by mid morning. Any choice for breakfast is good. You can't go wrong. Excellent value.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit to the cafe! Visiting us early is gooadvice as we are very often busy mid morning. The wait line moves fairly quickly if we have one, however. Thanks for stopping by. We look forward to your next visit.

“Better than average breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We were told that this was a good place for breakfast, and they were right! Corned beef hash was homemade, and very good. One of our group had the day's breakfast bowl and loved it, but couldn't finish it it was so big. The offer of three homemade jellies and jams was too much to pass up. Now that we have been there, we are sorry it is so far from our home -- we won't be able to get there often for breakfast -- but we might start planning some trips to L.L. Bean so that we get there for breakfast on the way!
